After graduating from the Lviv University in 1974 he started his research activities at the Institute for Applied Problems of Mechanics and Mathematics NASU. He obtained both his PhD (1983) and Doctoral degree (1997) from the Main Astronomical Observatory NASU. Since 2001 Hnatky has been the Director of the Astronomical Observatory of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv becoming a Leading scientific researcher in 2008. He has been a visiting scientist at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso of the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare and the Astronomical Observatory of the Jagiellonian University. His research interests include high energy astrophysics, relativistic astrophysics, astrophysics of cosmic rays, cosmology. He has published more than 70 papers in leading astronomical and physical journals. He was the Laureate of the Barabashov prize of NASUne in the field of astronomy in 1999.Personal webpage 

Alla MoinaInstitute for Condensed Matter Physics, National Academy of Sciences of UkraineAlla Moina was born in 1971 in Boryslav, Lviv region. She graduated from Lviv University in 1993 defending her doctoral dissertation in 1998. Currently she is a senior research fellow in the Institute for Condensed Matter Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Lviv. Her current scientific interests include the theory of the orderdisorder type ferroelectrics, crystals with hydrogen bonds, in particular, the effects of external factors such as pressures or electric fields on the phase transitions in such systems and on their physical properties.Personal webpage 

Igor OmelyanInstitute for Condensed Matter Physics, National Academy of Sciences of UkraineIgor Omelyan was born on December 20, 1961 in Lviv. In 1984 he graduated from Ivan Franko Lviv State University. He started his scientific work in the Lviv Division of Statistical Physics of the Institute for Theoretical Physics. In 1990 this institute transformed into the ICMP Division and it is here where Igor currently holds a position in research. His scientific interests and collaboration over the years include investigations on nonequilibrium processes in dense gases and liquids (19861999, together with D.Zubarev, V.Morozov and M.Tokarchuk); development of the generalized collective mode approach for simple and polar fluids (19942000, I.Mryglod, M.Tokarchuk); construction of numerical algorithms for molecular dynamics (MD) simulations (19982012); study of dynamical and critical behaviour in spin liquids (20002009, R.Folk, I.Mryglod); elaboration of the integral equation theory(20032005, F.Hirata, A.Kovalenko); combination of MD with the molecular theory of solvation for acceleration of computer simulations of proteins (20132017, A.Kovalenko).Personal webpage
